Summary:"The definitive bilingual version of Rilke's New Poems--faithful to the original German, with insightful commentary on every poem. Rainer Maria Rilke is one of the world's best-selling poets, and New Poems contains many of his most iconic pieces. Throughout, Rilke he is obsessed with shapes and different layers of physical containment--from an image held in a panther's eye to a cathedral window. Translator Joseph Cadora has created the definitive English-language version through meticulous faithfulness to Rilke's German and insightful commentary on each of the four hundred-plus poems. As Cadora said in an interview, 'I tried to stay true to the vision of Rilke that would invite the reader into his world, not mine.'" -- Publisher's description.
